Misc. Comments

  • Grove Music lists this as being a theoretical essay followed by a choral work, but the vocal parts look more like solo roles. There is only one line per movement, it doesn't have the normal division of multiple voices, and it is unlikely to be unison chorus.
  • The movements, apart from the first one, are named after the role that is sung, and in all but L'Empereur, La Mort comes back to sing, but never with the other role.
  1. La Mort (this movement does not have a separate name)
  2. L'Empereur
  3. L'Aïeule
  4. Le Soldat
  5. La Nonne
  6. Le Riche
  7. L'Enfant
